Title
(EN) ROOT CANAL DEBRIDEMENT EFFECTIVENESS DEVICE AND METHOD
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ D'EFFICACITÉ DE DÉBRIDEMENT DE CANAL RADICULAIRE
Abstract
(EN)
A method for continuously evaluating the effectiveness of debridement of a root canal (24) of a tooth (18), the tooth (18) having an open access cavity (25) and an apex end (26), includes delivering a fluid to the open access cavity (25) of the tooth (18), evacuating the fluid near the apex end (26) of the tooth (18) such that the fluid flushes most of the root canal (24) before being evacuated, and continuously evaluating the evacuated fluid for at least one of a presence of debris (86), a concentration level of the debris (86), or a type of the debris (86). An apparatus (10) for use in debriding a root canal (24) of a tooth (18) includes a microcannula (38) or a macrocannula configured to evacuate a fluid in the root canal (24), and a sensing mechanism (14) fluidically coupled to the microcannula (38) or the macrocannula.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un procédé d'évaluation continue de l'efficacité du débridement d'un canal radiculaire (24) d'une dent (18), la dent (18) ayant une cavité d'accès ouverte (25) et une extrémité de sommet (26), comprenant l'administration d'un fluide à la cavité d'accès ouverte (25) de la dent (18), l'évacuation du fluide à proximité de l'extrémité de sommet (26) de la dent (18) de telle sorte que le fluide rince la majeure partie du canal radiculaire (24) avant d'être évacué, et l'évaluation en continu du fluide évacué sous vide pour au moins un élément parmi une présence de débris (86), un niveau de concentration des débris (86), ou un type de débris (86). Un appareil (10) utilisé pour débrider un canal radiculaire (24) d'une dent (18) comprend une microcanule (38) ou une macrocanule conçue pour évacuer un fluide dans le canal radiculaire (24), et un mécanisme de détection (14) couplé fluidiquement à la microcanule (38) ou la macrocanule.
